National Immunization Awareness Week

National Immunization Awareness Week (NIAW) is an annual event held in the last week of April to highlight and recognize the importance of immunization. Canada’s NIAW coincides with Vaccination Week in the Americas and World Immunization Week.

During NIAW, you will see increased publicity about the importance of immunization and the success and impact that immunization has had in protecting and saving lives. Many organizations, in Canada and around the world, participate in international strategies to raise awareness about the important role of vaccines.

Immunize Canada invites you to celebrate National Immunization Awareness Week with us from 23-30 April 2022.

Social media calendar: April 2022

Hashtags: #NIAW2022 #VaccinesWork
